And one more thing: the interns will be paid!

Pinewood and the BFI have co-invested in four films to date: "Last Passenger," "Belle," "Our Robot Overlords" and "Posh." The BFI has also helped to finance British independent productions such as the Oscar-winning "The King's Speech" and box office success "The Woman in Black."
